For me having a comic book store in walking distance, next to my favorite bar is a match made in heaven. The Zone is an asset to the community. There are so many comic, gaming, and collectible enthusiast in our area that The Zone is an oasis. Wildly friendly, well informed, clean, open, well stocked, ever rotating products (There are several Zone locations in the area) and fair prices. I’m not much of a gamer but there is an entire section of the store dedicated to gaming. D&D perhaps? I’m not sure but what I do know is when I want to pick up a couple of Jack Kirby comics or D&D books for my step son or unique gift for the Holidays, Scott at the Zone is always there.
